Hello UK Cubers,
The World Championship has recently come to a close and we hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did, whether you were there, watching the livestream, or just following the results!
As some of you know, the World Championships and the European Championships alternate odd and even years respectively. This means that the internal WCA bid for the European Championship 2018 has now opened.
The UKCA are going to be making a bid for the European Championship 2018 to be held in London. However, to make this as successful as possible, we will be needing your help!
Our biggest hurdle and most urgent item on the agenda will be getting sponsorship for the competition. If you work for a company or know someone that works for a company that may be able to sponsor the competition with either money, goods, or services, we would like for you to get in touch. Sponsorship comes in all forms, whether it be printing services for cube covers or scorecards, or a hotel sponsorship which can get us better rates on rooms for competitors. There are tons of opportunities for sponsorship so if you would like to help out then do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss further. The sponsorship will not be necessary unless we win the bid, but we are looking for them at this early stage since the bid process requires it.
The bid must be submitted to the WCA Board before the end of August, so please reply as soon as possible to help us with our preparation!
If we win the bid, then we will certainly be looking for a lot more help in the future. There is a lot of work that goes in to hosting a major championship and there are plenty of skill sets that can be put to use. So look out in the future for anything you might be able to help us with!
